Delhi-Noida Toll Bridge irregularities should serve as warning about perils of the PPP model

Some PPPs are virtual sell-outs to private interests at public expense; the Delhi-Noida Toll Bridge, popularly known as DND Flyway, is one such example of a corrupt contract that would render the very idea of PPP an anathema #Uttar Pradesh #Delhi #Noida #ConnectTheDots #Planning Commission #Arun Jaitley #Yamuna #Public-private partnership #Delhi-Noida Toll Bridge #DND Flyway #Infrastructure Finance & Leasing Services

Navjot Singh Sidhu wasn't silent on AAP, he gave Kejriwal a message on Punjab

Sidhu's greatest strengths are also his perceived weakness when it comes to joining a one-man show like Aam Admi Party. Sidhu has a swagger. He is a towering personality, can play the camera, and commands undivided attention. He won't be subservient to anyone. A party like AAP can only afford one such personality and in Kejriwal, that spot is taken. #Congress #BJP #Punjab #Narendra Modi #Rajya Sabha #Arun Jaitley #Arvind Kejriwal #Shiromani Akali Dal #SAD #Navjot Singh Sidhu #Amit Shah #AAP #2017 Punjab Assembly elections #Amtrisar
